NITLE Semantic Engine (NSE)

From ToolCenter

"During the past two years, a team of computer scientists and programmers at NITLE has developed a prototype of the NITLE Semantic Engine (NSE). This prototype was designed to address the universal problem of accessing and organizing large amounts of unstructured digital text. Using mathematical algorithms to index the latent semantic content of documents, the prototype engine has been demonstrated to drastically reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive and time-consuming metadata tagging, and to produce results superior to keyword searches in limited test domains.

The NITLE Semantic Engine (NSE) is at the center of NITLE's research and development mission. It is designed to enable scholars and educators to manage the already overwhelming and ever-increasing volume of data that we encounter in every field of inquiry. NITLE plans to develop a set of tools that will enable researchers to quickly search large datasets that may be distributed across multiple databases, to interact with the engine to refine the search, and to contribute their knowledge to the collection. We also plan to devise a set of visualization and archiving tools for the researcher to use, to facilitate the organization and dissemination of the search results."
